NFL says Chiefs’ Husain Abdullah shouldn’t have been penalized for slide, prayer in end zone

The Chiefs’ Husain Abdullah returned an interception 39 yards for a touchdown Monday night, slid on his knees and bowed in prayer. His celebration drew a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, but the NFL said Tuesday that Abdullah should not have been penalized. The Council on American-Islamic Relations issued a statement asking that the NFL take steps in response to the penalty.
